Remember when this chick used to be a ‘celebrated journalist’? Me neither, but supposedly she was, once.
That’s what the bio said, anyway.
I just remember her as another face from CNN’s endless parade of activist journalists.
Well, to nobody’s surprise, we’re finding that even RETIRED CNN personalities retain their ability to be catty.
‘Celebrated Journalist’ and supporter of humanitarian causes Soledad O’Brien felt a sudden need to spew her bile at Melania Trump.
That’s not quite accurate, either.
She lashed out when someone else dared to compliment the First Lady on … her fashion choices.
Here’s the tweet O’Brian reacted to:
when you coordinate your outfit to match your Stan Smiths.

Here’s her ‘professional reaction’:
When you’re a birther, but the media—which has long failed to cover race and racism thoughtfully—comments on your outfit coordination. https://t.co/LNze2hT6Si

Oh no. Someone dared to compliment the First lady? How gauche.
She must be flogged at once.
Full credit to Kate Bennett for her gracious reply, when she would have been entirely justified to give Soledad a solid social media smackdown.
Soledad, I have for years and years, as a former fashion editor and fan of fashion generally, used my twitter account to comment on the outfits of first ladies, former and present. If you don't like how I choose to use my account, unfollow. This tweet is beneath you. https://t.co/dsLpVRYNfu

Is it because she hates the Trumps that much? Or is this just petty jealousy?
Would Soledad be able to ‘wow’ people in a similar outfit the way Melania can?
Is this why she got so rabidly upset about a fashion complement?
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
